mean thing

i'm being tortured by my colleagues who i share a threesome office with. we were thrown together only recently after a restructuring of teams and office space. i think i was one of very few people who didn't have to move.

instead i now share the room with two girls who both've got macbooks. just to remind you: my only two-year old powerbook g4 passed away about two months ago. well, the motherboard did, its heart so to say. it's a shock of course with a pretty expensive gadget like an apple notebook (new back then: more than 2,200 euros). to fix it would have cost me nearly 1,500 euros. a new macbook, also with a superdrive, is cheaper than that.

anyway, to make my life even more miserable one of my colleagues had her new macbook sent to the office, unpacked it today and played with it. right in front of me. the other one had hers with her as well, so we could have had an apple party if it wasn't for the fact that i'm an apple widow. a very frustrated one.

i'm lucky enough to have friends with a sense of compassion and old powerbooks they don't need at the moment but are still working even if a little slow and without all the extras mine had. i shouldn't complain. i do anyway because I WANT MY BABY BACK!!!

there's a motherboard currently on offer on ebay. yesterday i thought i had come to terms with my lot. today i'm not so sure anymore. i'm really thinking about investing money again but is it worth it? that's the question. bloody bastards. apple should be ashamed of themselves for giving me grief like that and then do nothing about it. it's not right. mope!

i can't afford the motherboard anyway and it's even more frustrating to keep thinking about it. i have to let go... whoooooooohooooooooooooohooooooooooooooooooooooo
